The Electoral Commission of Ghana has taken back the results of the presidential polls that was declared on December 9, 2020, after admitting it contained some errors.
A new post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the morning of Thursday, December 10, 2020, on the verified Twitter handle of the commission reveals some corrections were made.
In a statement, the Electoral Commission clearly acknowledged that the Chairperson, Mrs Jean Mensah mistakenly used 13,433,573 as the total valid votes cast, which was not the case.

According to the commission, the total valid votes cast is 13,119,460 and this does not change the percentages stated for each candidate and the declaration made by the Chairperson.
Meanwhile, a video showing the atmosphere at the office of former President John Dramani Mahama soon after he was declared to have lost the presidential election has surfaced.
The footage sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Youtube handle of Ghanaweb shows a solemn atmosphere with party faithfuls walking around calmly with sadness.
John Dramani Mahama's NDC was declared by the Electoral Commission (EC) chaired by Jean Mensah to have lost the election to ruling President Nana Akufo-Addo.
The NDC candidate in the just-ended 2020 Elections, John Mahama, has also made his first comment after the EC declared his opponent, Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) the winner.
